Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Tokai AST-56
Stevie was photographed playing this Tokai on March 24, 1985, in Worcester, Massachusetts. Apparently, it was one of the five Tokai’s that Stevie was provided after signing an endorsement deal with Tokai in 1985.
Very little is known about the guitar, aside from what was revealed in the 2020 auction (see Lot # 8I: Stevie Ray Vaughan’s Stage Used Tokai AST-56 Guitar). The only really interesting thing worth pointing out is the fact that the guitar didn’t have the “SRV” sticker when it was first photographed in 1985, but that changed by the time it was sold, in 1994.
